Welcome to KING 2019-2020!

Thank you for joining KING Aquatic Club as either a returning family or as a new member with our club.  KING has completed this first full season with new management, new coaches, and many new families.  We learned a lot together this first season and are always making strides to improve upon our initial model.  As a team, we have learned how our role impacts others as well as ourselves. As we start this latest journey, our goals are simple: drive to progress; nurture and celebrate our successes; strive to always do better; embrace our differences; and have fun doing it!

As our new season racks up again in September, our core coaching staff shall be joined by new coaches on deck. They will be introduced to our KING family shortly. 

You will notice some changes immediately as well.  In order to improve our team organization and growth, Anthon Rasmussen has agreed to take on the role of General Manager of KING.  Anthon Rasmussen is not only our longest tenured coach at CAC but also parent to two KING swimmers as well. Anthon has over 25 years of management experience with 18 of those in Aquatics. We will now be able to benefit from Anthon?s incredible organizational skills across the entire team with the business and coaching model he has developed at the Covington Pool under KING.  In addition to his role, he will develop marketing strategies to help grow our team beyond our current scope. Please welcome him in his new role when you get an opportunity.

Instead of an end of school year training camp, we will experiment with a short camp before school starts this summer for our Pre-Senior to Senior level groups.  The purpose of the camp: team bonding; setting team and personal goals; discussion of expectations; fitness growth for our upcoming season; and of course, to have fun.  More information about the camp will be sent out shortly.

As we start our new season, we have made a minor change in our group breakdown. Instead of our current Novice group, we are excited to introduce Pre-Competition. Although it is very similar to our Novice group, we are making one major change. It shall be our only non-USA Swimming group within KING. Coaches shall focus on our 4 competitive strokes, fitness, a base dryland workout to ensure proper form, starts & turns, and emphasize proper stroke technique to better prepare them for our entry-level groups.

For KING, in 2019-2020 we will focus on learning and getting better a little bit every day.  Being part of KING is more than just a swim team ? It is a family. We are proud of our family as we are proud of our young athletes. We want to put our stamp on the culture that defines KING.  At the end of this next season, I hope every parent and every swimmer will have the same answer for the question, ?What is special about KING?? 

We are in the fourth year of a quadrennial.  2020 is an Olympic year and typically the period of highest growth for youth sports teams in Olympic sports such as swimming.  We need to set ourselves up this season for the growth that we anticipate next summer. 

Thanks again for being part of the KING family.  ~ Go KING!

Sincerely,

Terry and Elizabeth Yen
